Typically incremental points are only a small fraction of the space of the full backup, so if you don't have enough space to store a full backup, and two small incremental points, you are playing with fire. Even if there was a setting for only one point, your VBK would likely grow to fill the available space in a matter of weeks. I'd strongly suggest you consider planning for some additional space.

This is due to how transform works while applying retention settings in backup copy job. Having additional restore point ensures at least one restore point remains valid in case of incremental backup failure.mikegodwin wrote:Is there a reason a copy job requires a minimum of 2 restore points?
Agree with Tom, you definitely should have some extra space in the repository. But weren't you notified about lack of space on the repository during the backup copy job run (there is a corresponding setting in Veeam B&R options dialog and there should be a warning in the job session log)?
